Finally got to do a bit more work on Saabocus what with all this rally car malarky Joe's got us into.. :lol:
Pulled the interior from the spare room along with lots of other parts...
Front and rear seats bolted in, centre consol.. front and rear bumpers on, need to get facelift rear bumper loom and couple support brackets.. boot carpets all refitted, wing mirror covers, bonnet vents and trim not fitted as I maybe get them carbon dipped..
With this nice hot sunny day or 2 I got it out the garage to bake in the sun..
Yes bumpers and skirts I done in a slightly darker shade, think it'd better than having car all the same colour.. still not sure what to do with roof yet..
Bonnet and boot not closed as I want to make sure 100% that they are going to open.. prone to faults these key opening mechanisms and micro switches..

Well, I've not really done anything to the car since last time as we've been to busy with the rally cars etc..
I did notice a wee leak from a hose and temp sensor switch seems to have broken off so I've replace the hose and managed to get the broken temp sensor out and fit another.. so hopefully I won't lose any more powercool 180 (liquid gold) :lol:
Just a few more wee jobs still to do before I can get it on the road.. when I get time and get the ecu done..

Forgot where I was on this now after all the rallying ins and outs..
So I got some time to get the rear spoiler and other parts I wanted to do in black.. took them out to Joe's work (bigger shed) done some rubbing down and he wanted to paint them, so I thought I better let him, whilst me and Shannon talked rally stuff having coffee and cakes :lol:
Hopefully I can get them fitted next couple days.. still got to fit side skirts etc.. awaiting ecu.. maybe get it on the road this year.!!
